employment. with the romney campaign, garrett, is the governor sticking to his guns on the economy, or do the new numbers change things? >> milissa, the only new change is governor romney is going to have to retire one of his favorite lines, is the unemployment rate remaining above%. we expect that line to disappear. but focus will stay the same, with perhaps a bit more of a target, talking about the deficit and spending. you see the slogan we can't afford four more years like the last four years. governor romney has been ham thaerg home in recent days. we expect him to do the same again tonight. >> how is the prep going for the next debate? any ideas as to a change in strategy there? >> well, milissa, i can tell you they've been essentially prepping for this second debate, which is a town hall format for more than a year. governor romney did dos of town halls, particularly in the early primary states like new hampshire where you have rambunctious comments from a variety of folks. that is something he was very comfortable with. in the last few days they've been doing telephone town halls

and again. our national debt now is almost the same as our total gdp. this slows down the economy. it makes it harder for businesses to grow and hire more people and to raise wages. and so unlike the president, when i finally get this job, i will cap federal spending, i will cut federal spending and get us on track to a balanced budget. there are other differences as well. the president is planning on, through obama care, cutting medicare for our current retiree s by $716 billion. i think that's wrong. i think we must honor the promise made to our seniors. i will restore that funding and make sure we protect medicare and social security and one more thing i'll mention, the president's budget calls for shrinking our military by hundreds of billions of dollars and then the sequestration idea the white house came up with cuts it another few hundred billion. the secretary of defense has called those kinds of cuts devastating to our national security. i will not cut our military. i'll restore that funding and keep our military second to none in the world. >> mitt romney on the stump th
